Prose. Janet Hamill is the author of three previous books of poems, Troublante, The Temple (Telephone Books, 1980), and Nostalgia of the Infinite (Ocean View Books, 1992). Her poems, fiction, and criticism have appeared in Poetry Flash, Kansas Quarterly, Exquisite Corpse, New Leaves, the Hart Crane Newsletter, and in many other magazines, journals, and anthologies. She is the author of broadsheets including The Enigma of Buster Keaton, The Pleiades, and Madam Bogart's Arts of Animal Ecstasy. This latest title, LOST CEILINGS, presents her short prose pieces. A brilliant collection of lyrical surreal visions where on familiar streets the curtain of reality shifts and the reader is drawn into haunting parallel interiors.
